(5-31-22) It is never to early to talk high school football in Ohio. Two stateline area high schools face another year as a football independent. The two schools are Ft. Loramie and Lima Central Catholic (LCC)….over the years both have been very competitive. While other schools during the season are playing for a conference title, these two are only playing to win games and qualify for the state playoffs.

The two schools will match-up on the last Friday of the season at Ft. Loramie. Both schools have one common opponent on their schedules….Lucas.

The Redskins will open with three familiar foes, two Midwest Athletic Conference (MAC) members…Minster and Versailles, during week 1 and 2. The 3rd school is from the Northwest Athletic Conference…Spencerville and they will play during week 3.

The Redskins will have six home games and four on the road.
